RE: Fast and furious, Tokyo drift

I'm a bit disappointed it's a new main character, to be honest. But I like The Fast and the Furious stuff, and so does my girlfriend ;) While it's mostly fake and pretty obivous, they have had a solid story line, and it's more or less a real-life version of the latest Need for Speed game. But, I lik...

RE: dictionary kanji sounds

I had a question I was going to post elsewhere, but since it goes along this whole theme here.. Is there any general rule for kanji which start with a H- (B-) (P-) sound to know just which sound the compound would make? As an example, the first instance of this that anyone learning kanji comes acros...

Jumping off the deep end..

Well, rather than try something simple to increase my Japanese knowledge, I've decided to find online Japanese games and just dive right in ;) To that end, does any one have any suggestions? I've been playing Kunshu just because I saw it somewhere and clicked it ;) And while I'm levelling alright, I...

RE: What are you listening to right now?

Currently it's: Moriyama Naotaro - Sakura Then: Ikimono-gakari - Hanabi (the newest Bleach ending) Followed, oddly enough, by: Akeboshi - Yellow Moon single, which is the newest ending theme to Naruto, though the single has a couple other good songs on it, the last of which is a fairly neat lil tech...

RE: A quick one..

Thanks Oyaji, I did some google searches on it, and it kind of clicked when I saw it used to mean "a 6-figure salary". So I took it to mean less than 100 yen, and checked back and here you confirmed it =D It's actually in the Da Capo manga (not sure how much manga you read, if any). I figured starti...

A quick one..

I don't entirely get this one.. 残金2ケタ - Money remaining: 2 bucks? The best I could find for the keta was 桁, dgit / order of magnitude. Mind you, it's in a manga, and the reason I chose bucks over dollars (for a cleaner English translation) is because ti's written in katakana. Would that be right? Li...

RE: seemingly safe places to live in japan

New York isn't an unsafe place to live. But urban areas, with high number of people, means there'll naturally be more crime. I live in East Tennessee, which has one of the lowest crime rates of anywhere. However, Oak Ridge out here is a big nuclear facility. So you measure safety differently if some...

RE: OMG naruto stop with the fillers!!!

LOL, Kiba's cool alright. I think most people like the guy that's like them, too.. or maybe that's more like how they wish they could be ;) I would say I'm most like Jiraiya, hehe.

RE: OMG naruto stop with the fillers!!!

LOL.. I liked this episode. The Hinata arc of the filler was good, too. I want the rest of the story as much as anyone, but it's either get the filler out of the way now, or do a season of naruto, a season of filler, a season of naturo, a season of filler.. ad naseum. Now, I dunno if you keep up wit...

RE: Favorite Japanese Drama ?

I loved Densha Otoko as well. And while it's campy as hell, I'm a fan of the Saiyuuki remake. Sure, it's more or less a spoof, but it's funny. I recently acquired Odoru Daisousasen, but haven't seen it yet. Oh, and the You're Under Arrest Live Action is always a classic. I'm really just getting into...

RE: Kanji version of gaijin?

It's acceptable to just write gaijin. The other one - gaikokujin - is the original form of the word, which was shortened to gaijin through that ever so popular Japanese desire to make words shorter. At least, that's the way I heard it ;) Someone might be able to give a deeper explaination on it.

I guess another question I have it this: Do you know how to play? Cause if not, you could ask for lessons.. lessons requires you have one of such thing, as well =D

RE: Short passage

The first one says, more or less: For this event, Episode 29 will have new events for each character, and contain a suppliment of the battle scene composition cut.
And it goes on with stuff about director's cut.
The second one I'll let someone else take =D
